Blueberries Improve Artery Function

An article by Dr. Greger ( on blueberries led me to a fascinating research on the benefits of blueberries on vascular function. 

What was fascinating about this research? Ana Rodriguez-Mateos and her group made sure that the participants did not eat a diet rich in polyphenols which means no fruits, veggies, cocoa or chocolate and wine (and alcohol), tea and coffee; and also no nitrate rich foods like green leafy veggies and beetroot. And that is not all - they could not exercise vigorously.  Blueberries had to either improve artery function or not - all on their own!

Although this was a very blend and albeit unhealthy diet, blueberries were truly put to the test.

The participants got various amounts of blueberries a day (in a drink), plus a control group with a placebo like drink that had no blueberries but tasted like blueberries so the participants did not know if they got the blueberries or not. 

Results?  Blueberries truly did a beautiful job of improving artery functions which as we know, is important to heart health and a host of other benefits to the brain, immune system, nervous system and more. Enjoy the Article
